Players to watch
Cale Morris, G, Notre Dame: Morris stopped 55 of the 57 shots he faced last weekend (Nov. 16-17), in Notre Dame’s sweep of Michigan State. Morris posted a shutout against Providence on Oct. 13, his fifth career shutout.
Troy Loggins, F, Northern Michigan: Loggins leads the Wildcats in goals (6) and points (11). He has scored five goals in the past five games.
There are freshman mistakes and then there is this:
A Towson player scored on his own basket in a contest against La Salle.
— La Salle Men’s Basketball (@LaSalleMBB) December 22, 2018
The culprit was freshman forward Solomon Uyaelunmo for the Tigers. On an in-bounds play early in the second half, Towson had the ball in their own backcourt. Uyaelunmo, playing in the 12th game of his collegiate career, slowed down after leaving his defender, almost as if he was curious why no one was following him. Still, he took the open in-bounds pass turned to a wide-open basket to slam it home.
At the last minute he pulled up from a dunk, but there is no telling if that was because he realized the atrocity that he was committing.
The good news is that not many people were probably watching, both teams were a combined 5-17 (.227) coming into the contest.
La Salle (2-10) would go on to win the game 57-51. Uyaelunmo scored as many points for his team (2) as he did for the Explorers.
I don’t know if we should feel worse for him or for No. 5, Jakigh Dottin who saw the whole thing play out and didn’t even want to pass that ball to him in the first place.
